rattlesnake-1A scene filled with large rattlesnakes would be the stuff of nightmares for most people. In a dream, it can stand in as an analogy for all the things in the world that are venomous to us, that can make us sick, or even kill us, meaning any enticement or distraction that draws our attention away from our human purpose. And we may think that human purpose is something for others to worry about and pursue, it’s really everyone’s problem because every generation we get further and further away from our truth, to the point where the species as a whole is in danger of losing its universal support. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: Well, the first dream I remember, it’s like I’m in a room but it must lead out into the desert because there’s all these rattlesnakes everywhere, and some of them were big, and they strike at things.

And it feels like we collect the snake venom or the snakes, or something like that, and it even has to do with collateral or income. It’s like the initial part of the dream I don’t remember as much what it related to because I just seem to be studying how people did that, and how you had to be really careful because the snakes can sometimes jump way up in the air and you can get bitten.

And then after I’ve studied that out a bit, it feels like this man comes. He’s from Mexico and he’s got a native background, and he takes me elsewhere, and I figure out that he’s actually a real rattlesnake hunter. It’s more like we were just coping with the snakes we saw. I’m trying to understand how they interacted with things, but he takes me out and then he takes me into a building, but this building seems to open up into like a desert-type environment – and it’s where all the snakes live. And as I look around, even though it’s a little bit dimly lit, I see there’s big snakes everywhere.

And there’s also these little things that crawl on the ground that look like kind of pale frogs. I never can quite see exactly what they look like. They seem to accompany the snakes, and I think that maybe they’re a food that the snakes have, but I can’t see them clearly enough. But I think of them as some kind of toad, or frog.

And then I find out this guide, who’s taken me, he belongs to a certain tribe from Mexico. He’s like a professional snake hunter, and then he even shows me he has a dog with him, and he’s got the dog all wrapped up with a coat to protect it from getting struck by the snakes. And it’s a Doberman.

And then he’s dressing up for us to go out and collect whatever we need to collect in this kind of desert of snakes, like he’s putting some kind of cover over his shoes, because they’re kind of like the shoes you see native Americans wear that are like moccasins that lace up the leg a bit. But then he’s covering that with something that would protect him from snake bites, and he’s putting on what looks almost like a fireman’s uniform, in a way, because it protects you from snake bites. And then we’re going to go out to collect something. So I’m curious about this, but also a little leery of the snakes.

And then I see that where he’s gone out into this desert that seems to be inside a room, and what he’s brought back are these bones that look like carvings of people from the village of the type of Native American that he is, and he’s explaining to me that he’s going to take it back to the city because it’s like, even though there’s a city and it’s populated, there’s not that many people from his tribe left.

And so it’s like if he could go out into this area, this desert where all the snakes were, to these artifacts which look like little carved people, and bring that back, it’s like that will lead to there being more people from his lineage, or his village, or his race, that will be in the city afterwards; they’ll be born there or something.

I wasn’t quite sure how it all worked. I was just studying it out, and that was when I woke up.

John: The dream starts off with having to do with conditions in life being what they are, that have been this way for a long, long time, that reflect or permeate a direness.

In other words, the dream starts off in which it’s like in the city of things there are snakes. Something can be too much, and then when you go into the outer you see that it’s accommodated in some fashion, by nature, but it still reflects an imbalance. Nature is trying to transform, or reform, the condition. And, in nature, even though you can see the reflective remnants of things that are in a process of being transformed, when viewed from the perspective of where it all comes from, in other words going back into like an overall collective, it is an accumulation. It is a conglomerated accumulation that tears things down.

Now if you were to take and dwell upon the way things are being torn down, it then tears you down. So what you have to do is you have to recognize that all of the snakes in the conglomeration of things from which they originated, that go back maybe having been put in place by misconduct, and unconscious nature, that goes back you know lifetimes, that it has gotten to a point where man, in order to redeem himself, has to take back the issue, and he has to take it back in a revelational way.

In other words, you don’t go looking at the overtopism that was created, and yet at the same time you can’t ignore what was done, because you can see it, and you go into the all natural country – it’s there too. It’s infected, or permeated, through everything that exists.

But if you try to just lilt along and put the best spin on it, where you could avoid some of this, it doesn’t change the slant of manifestation that has been overwhelmed, and overpowered, by this collective ignorance. And so much so that it is causing things to be on life support, to break down.

And so deep down you know that there is a thread from somewhere deep, deep that can make a difference. It’s a vibrational thread and, instead of recoiling to what is out of balance, you come to realize that you have to take it into account. You have to accept it in the condition as it is, and thus, if you are able to do that, you bring the vibration back that is going out of life. You bring it back, and, of course, you’re told that if you don’t bring it back, the alternative is your species will die out.

0ei1This dream is a good example of the concept that we have many lives within us. We like to think that we are one life, yet we also know that at different times, and in different ways, separate aspects of our inner self can be in control and steer the decisions we make – sometimes upsetting other parts of ourself. Here we see a gifted child, something special arising within, suddenly becoming a threat to everything because it feels hurt by events. And such turf wars go on inside of us all the time, which is why we need a purpose greater than all the individual agendas to bring our wholeness into agreement. (At the end of this post there are instructions and a link to download this recording to your computer.)

Jeane: I had like three dreams, and I think the first one was I was like a high school teacher, and I had a very gifted student I was working with. But then, at the school that I had, I started bringing in other gifted students, until suddenly I turn around and it’s like all the classrooms are filled with gifted students.

But then the first gifted student that I’d had, the boy I was working with, it seems like now he’s jealous, and he’s leaving, or even wants to try to burn the school down or something. And I’m left with this dilemma of trying to figure out how to hold things together, because of his reaction when he’s not like the only one. That was the first dream.

John: So what that dream is describing is, it’s portraying a deranged condition in which you feel your responsibility is to try to find, or establish, an order, a balance, something that can hold a needed attention – because the situation has gone askew.

And that what is unfolding is about to destroy a bigger picture, or, as you put it, is about to burn the place down. That’s a pretty shocking thing. In other words, it’s basically saying that the effect of whatever has been going on with you is leaving you with the sensation that what is unfolding is a condition that is jeopardizing all that there is.

Jeane: Then I have a dream in which I’m like a woman who thinks she’s part Native American, and, as such, she’s been like taken into a white family, and she and maybe another woman she’s friends with are in the same condition. And maybe, because they have a touch of Native American blood, they’re seen as kind of exotic, and that’s kind of interesting, and they’re part of everything. But then it’s like I suddenly become aware that I’m probably more full-blooded Native American than that, which means I don’t fit where I belong, that I need to find where I actually do belong.

So then I have this sense of maybe being alone, because I’m going to have to go out and figure out where it is that I actually belong.

John: So this is a dream that’s saying that the condition, or the state, that you find yourself in, whatever it is that has happened, or things have happened, you have an orientation in terms of yourself that has changed, or shifted, in some fashion, where you come to a kind of awareness of a part of yourself that you hadn’t quite caught up with before.

And as a consequence of coming into an awareness with this part of yourself, that has a whole different energetic quality of unfoldment, you have to catch up with this. You have to access what this is all about, because how you had been is not something that you could say that you understood, or knew, before.

And, in this particular case, that’s what this dream is like. It’s like something that is not quite coming through, that’s like in the blood, that’s in your nature, that’s there that some aspect of it has gotten your attention – but what that means, in terms of where you belong, and how you belong, in other words, your indigenous nature of self, is something you have yet to catch up with.

The gifted boy was just attending the school, right? So he is someone that you look after, or someone that you have a responsibility over, but something about this boy has gone off on some tangent and is doing something that is jeopardizing the bigger picture of things.

And then you have this other dream in which, you might say, that the bigger picture of things is catching up with some sort of quality inside of yourself that you’re close to, but what that means in terms of the way you need to be, and how you need to be, you know enough to know that you have to honor that or follow that, or catch up with that, but you haven’t yet done that.

So the first dream has something that you have a responsibility to somehow touch in a way so it doesn’t cause a part of yourself to go off in some deranged way, and tear something of a process down, would burn the school down, would burn the house down. And you brought him in, you accepted that, but then it’s gotten out of hand and has gone off in some sort of bizarre catatonic way.

And you’ve got that side by side with this aspect of trying to catch up with a part of yourself. So all of that’s got to be intertwined. So the part that’s acting up, that’s haywire, that wants to do something really strange like burn the place down, which has a very despairing quality to it because you brought him into the place to begin with, or you accepted a responsibility with that, as that progresses, in terms of contending with that, you’re finding that there is another depth inside of yourself – an in the blood quality, so to speak – because your nature, and who you are, is Indian or something. It has another unfoldment built into it that’s different from ordinary unfoldment, and that you have to come to know, and you have to catch up with that.

That’s your second dream. So the first dream is destabilizing something, and so then the question is, is that destabilizing then a necessary means by which, and upon which, you’re able to come to grips with to recognize it, and catch up with, this deeper part of yourself?
